Michigan’s most conservative candidate for governor, Patrick Colbeck has found himself in the middle a high-profile battle against the intolerant Democrat Party and their allies in the media, who are attempting to destroy his gubernatorial campaign, for having the audacity to reveal his Democrat opponent’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

During a “see something, say something” forum with retired Homeland Security Officer Philip Haney, on April 2018, the second-term state senator from Canton Township talked about a “civilization jihad” plot by Muslims to “change our system of government” in America by implementing Sharia law. The effort includes obtaining “positions of influence,” he said, noting Hamtramck now has the first Muslim-majority City Council in the country.

“But we also have somebody I will also likely be running against in the general election, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, whose parents apparently have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood back in Egypt,” Colbeck said in one clip. “This is scary stuff.”

Colbeck clarified his remarks by saying, “I’m not casting aspersions on all Muslims, just those affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The response from Michigan’s Democrat candidate, Abdulrahman Mohamed El Sayed to Patrick Colbeck’s remarks has been ignored by the media. Instead of addressing Colbeck’s claims, El Sayed spewed a blanket claim that all Muslims hate Colbeck, not just El Sayed, but ALL Muslims.

“You may not hate Muslims, but Muslims hate you,” El-Sayed said after imploring the GOP field.

We’re pretty sure that if Colbeck told El Sayed that ALL Christians hated him, his career as a politician would have abruptly ended, yet, with the exception of a blurb in the Detroit News, this is likely the first time you’re reading about the claim El-Sayed made in front of a room full of people, including journalists, on behalf of every Muslim in Michigan (or perhaps the world?)

Detroit News – Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed on Thursday called for Republican rivals to condemn “Islamophobia” and “racism” after comments by GOP hopeful Patrick Colbeck during a rare forum featuring all seven candidates from the two major parties.

El Sayed is a habitual critic of President Trump as well:

El-Sayed is a practicing Muslim who has previously denied any affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood but on Thursday refused to dignify Colbeck’s comments, even after calling on Republican candidates Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, Attorney General Bill Schuette and Dr. Jim Hines to disavow them.

In July 2018, El Sayed bragged about the endorsement of Sharia advocate, and promoter of hate-preacher, and open Jew-hater, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakahn.

Here’s a short video of Linda Sarsour at a 2015 rally organized by Farrakhan to mark the 20-year anniversary of 1995 Million Man March that honored Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. El Sayed claims he is “honored” to receive her support for his candidacy. Does anyone else hear alarm bells?


Instead of responding directly to Colbeck and his claims about Sharia religious law creeping into the United States, El-Sayed noted that he or any candidate elected governor will have to take an oath to swear and uphold the state and federal constitutions.

It “guarantees me the right to pray as I choose to pray” and says that “no religious test shall be held over someone aiming to serve under this constitution,” El-Sayed said. “That is an incredible document.”

Colbeck denied that his repeated warnings of “civilization jihad” are rooted in racism or white supremacism.

“I love Muslims. It’s not an issue. The issue is terrorist organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said.


None of the other Republican candidates for governor addressed Colbeck’s comments during the forum. But Calley said after the event that he does “not agree with what Sen. Colbeck said.”

Colbeck made similar comments in a video that surfaced last month and was posted online by The United West of Florida, which has been called an anti-Muslim hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

So, who is Abdulrahman Mohamed El Sayed and how did he become a candidate for governor in the state of Michigan with no previous political appointments? Why is he frequently compared to Barack Obama? 

Jen Kuznicki, an actual journalist who lives in northern Michigan published a lengthy investigation into the background El Sayed, the Democrat candidate for governor. Here is a portion of what she uncovered.

El Sayed’s father left Egypt and came to America because he felt he was unable to properly practice his Muslim faith in Egypt.

El Sayed Abdulrahman Mohamed El Sayed was born in 1984 in Detroit to parents who immigrated from Egypt to America in the 1970’s. According to interviews, El Sayed stated that his father left Egypt because he felt he was unable to practice his religion properly in Egypt. The couple immigrated in what is known as the third wave of immigration to Detroit from the Middle East, and the father, an engineer, eventually worked for GM, and is a part-time Imam. The mother and father divorced sometime after Abdul’s birth and both married other people. According to Wikipedia, the mother is a nurse practitioner living in Missouri, and Abdul’s step-mother, Jacqueline El Sayed is an engineer as well. Abdul graduated in 2003 from Bloomfield Hills Andover High School where he was captain of three sports, football, wrestling and lacrosse. According to interviews, Abdul has said he spent his summers in Egypt. El Sayed comes from an extremely privileged background, in fact the 2000 census shows that the family median income in Bloomfield Hills was over $200,000.

El Sayed’s education was partially funded by George Soros.

According to interviews, Abdul knew from an early age that he wished to become a doctor. His college education lasted from September of 2003 until May of 2014. He attended the University of Michigan and received a B.S. in political science and biology. He then attained a doctorate in philosophy from Oxford University while simultaneously earning a medical degree from Columbia University. The funding for the latter was provided the Soros Fellowship for New Americans, which is run by the brother of the infamous George Soros, Paul, and is awarded to immigrant children for postgraduate study. He is a Rhodes Scholar. He joined the faculty at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health in 2014, was the director of Columbia’s Systems Science Program and Global Research Analytics for Population Health, and remained until August of 2015 when Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan appointed him as Executive Director of Detroit’s Health Department, a position he kept for one and one half years until he left in February of 2017 when he announced a run for governor.

Why did El Sayed get a degree in political science before pursuing a degree in social epidemiology? And what the heck is social epidemiology?

Abdul has degrees in political science, biology, philosophy, and social epidemiology. My first question was, why does a man who always knew he wanted to become a doctor have a political degree unless his intent was always to go into politics? Secondly, what is social epidemiology?

According to Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health Department of Epidemiology where Abdul attended, social epidemiology, “seeks to understand the ways in which social, political, cultural, and economic circumstances influence our chances for a healthy life. We combine theory from the social sciences with rigorous epidemiological methods so that we can illuminate the connections between social factors and health and use what we find to improve health. Within this broad frame we have a special interest in the connections between social inequalities and health inequalities.”

First, we aim to produce knowledge about the influence of social circumstances on health with a special emphasis on social inequalities in health. Second, we aim to train and mentor a new generation of scholars and practitioners who have the capacity to conduct rigorous research on the role of social factors in health. Third, we aim to leverage what we learn to improve population health and reduce health inequalities locally, nationally, and across international borders. Fourth we seek to translate and disseminate our work to policy makers, thought leaders, media, and the public and reinforce the message that social determinants of health are primary drivers of population health.

Which means that it is a social justice field of research and abstract theory. Which means, he’s a hardcore leftist.

In fact, the International Journal of Epidemiology scoffs at social epidemiology, on the basis that epidemiology cannot focus mainly on behavior.

This is important so that the potential voter can grasp that Abdul’s schooling, funded by a Soros group, quite probably was directed for a life in the pursuit of politically leftist social policy. In other words, if you think he has been groomed, it definitely looks like it, especially given the fact that one of his first degrees was in political science, and his last was in abstract social justice theory, in an area of science denied by its field of medicine.

Here is a video posted on El Sayed’s Twitter account where he brags about being a doctor and is being introduced by Sean King, a fake black man who is the face behind the divisive hate group Black Lives Matter. Notice the similarities to Barack Obama near the end of the video.

Kuznicki continues…

I spent hours watching videos of El Sayed’s interviews, public speaking engagements, and so on. His focus on his Arab name and his Arab ancestry is constant. Several times during one presentation, he says the words, “Hi my name is Abdulrahman El Sayed and I’m an Arab American,” to the same audience twenty to thirty minutes apart which seemed strange. Why reintroduce yourself so many times to a captive audience?

Here’s that part that supports Colbeck’s claim that El Sayed does, indeed, have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Here Abdul writes for the American people to support the Arab Spring, in which a false so-called “Democracy project” overthrew Mubarak in favor of Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi. The Muslim Brotherhood are often described as Islamists, militants and fascists in suits, while projecting an outward appearance of moderation, and held the highest number of governmental seats in Egypt when the so-called Arab Spring materialized. This would mean that El Sayed, if not linked to the Muslim Brotherhood through other reports that he was Vice President of the Muslim Students Association, and his wife was President of the MSA, (a legacy organization of the Muslim Brotherhood in America,) along with the fact that he holds dual citizenship in America and Egypt, we can deduce that he is at least influenced by Muslim Brotherhood propaganda in Egypt.

He also blames the problems of democratizing Middle East nations on Israel, the lone democracy in the Middle East. This is typically the argument from Islamists in the region, in fact the Muslim Brotherhood preaches that democracy is possible and when it doesn’t materialize, they blame Israelis, because they are democratic, and are at fault.

From numerous interviews and articles, I have detected the following political positions of Abdul El Sayed:

He wishes to make Michigan a sanctuary state for all “undocumented” immigrants.

He wants government to provide free college tuition for all.

He wants single-payer healthcare in Michigan, which means completely provided by government.


He supports the movement for a “living wage” and is a full-throated supporter of a $15 minimum wage.

He wants to direct federal money to specific cities in Michigan to replace water pipes even though this responsibility lies with the cities themselves.

He claims he is a man of the people who has to fight government for basic human rights.

He is pro-abortion, a strange position for a practicing, devout, Muslim.

Admitting that his political positions if instituted would be extremely costly, Abdul wishes to reexamine Michigan’s tax code and change it from a flat tax to a graduated tax system, which means, the more you make, the more government takes.

Given his writings and his dual citizenship as well as his summers spent in Egypt, it’s clear that if Abdul has no tie with the Muslim Brotherhood directly, which we will never be able to uncover given the nature of the organization, he certainly repeats their ideas and mindset and this raises flags that he may be emulating the outwardly moderate, inwardly militant persona that characterizes the Muslim Brotherhood. Understand that the question of whether he is emulating the Muslim Brotherhood is not a certainty, but for voters, the political calculations of the candidate are certainly fair game.

Now, Muslim Brotherhood aside, El Sayed is definitely the most liberty-crushing candidate running for governor. His understanding of the Constitution is abysmal and reflective of the leftist work of Barack Obama and all radical leftists, to undermine it. So, in essence, there is little difference between the aims of the Muslim Brotherhood on American society, and the aims of the radical left on American society – using the freedoms of America in order to undermine them – is a shared goal of both.

Given that he is consistently compared to Barack Obama, and that he says he helped Obama gain office, it seems odd there are no pictures of him and the former president. There are however, pictures of him and Linda Sarsour, who has endorsed him, Bill Clinton, and Maxine Waters, but none of Obama. It is noteworthy that he penned an article for the Huffington Post claiming progressive disappointment with the lack of change Obama was able to produce. Abdulrahman Mohamed El Sayed is far more radical than Barack Obama, and would use his knowledge and probably use his charges of racism against anyone who gets in his way.

He bases a lot of his political experience on his stint as Executive Director of Health in Detroit, and the Flint water crisis, which ironically, was caused by Detroit shutting off water to Flint.

El Sayed retweeted a tweet from Mari Copeny, aka “Little Miss Flint” a young social justice warrior, who attempted to shame Walmart into giving the city free water since they’ve bought so much of their cheap water for distribution to their residents. Flint water has been declared safe to drink since April 2018.

Why not shake down Walmart for free water anyhow…right? Democrats like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have been shaking down major corporations and large businesses for decades. For them, it’s the American way…

Is it any wonder this guy is compared to Barack Obama?

Here is Patrick Colbeck’s official statement in response to the liberal media and Democrat Party attacks against him:

Patrick Colbeck released the following statement regarding media reports and public statements regarding comments he made at a homeland security discussion:

“In recent days, I have been called pathetic, a bigot, a racist, an ass, anti-Muslim, thin-skinned, ignorant, closed-minded, and a coward by Democrats and their allies in the media.  What did I say to earn such derogatory remarks?  During a forum featuring former Department of Homeland Security Counter-Terrorism expert Dr. Phil Haney and former Muslim Brotherhood member Kamal Saleem, I made a presentation based on the Explanatory Memorandum which outlines the strategy for what the Muslim Brotherhood terms “civilization jihad”.  The Explanatory Memorandum has since been entered as evidence in the United States vs Holy Land Foundation trial.  Its contents are a matter of evidentiary fact not conjecture.  During my presentation, I had the audacity of stating that one of the Democrat candidates for Governor, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  The evidence of these ties is undeniable.  Please note that my statement was not anti-Muslim any more than associating someone with the Westboro Baptist Church would be seen as anti-Christian.  My statement of his association with the Muslim Brotherhood is merely a statement of fact.  His father-in-law is a board member and past President of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  CAIR was identified as an unindicted co-conspirator with the Muslim Brotherhood in the Holy Land Foundation trial.  CAIR was incorporated by three leaders in the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) in 1994.  The IAP is explicitly identified as one of the “friendly” organizations to the Muslim Brotherhood in the Explanatory Memorandum.  El-Sayed is also a past Vice President and Member of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) which is also identified as one of the “friendly” organizations to the Muslim Brotherhood in the Explanatory Memorandum.  The Pledge of Allegiance recited before MSA gatherings features “jihad is my spirit” and “I will die to establish Islam”.  Quite a departure from the Scout Oath I would submit.

So, why is being “friendly” to the Muslim Brotherhood such a big deal?  Is the Muslim Brotherhood simply a misunderstood charitable organization which actually seeks to share sunshine and lollipops with everyone?  No.  The stated objective of the Muslim Brotherhood in America per the Explanatory Memorandum is “a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western Civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions”.  Not one media account has shared this information.  What they have asserted is that my concerns regarding connections of certain individuals and organizations to the Muslim Brotherhood are “alleged”, wild “conspiracy theories”, or “hate speech”.  The more accurate media assertion would be that my assertions are a matter of evidentiary fact.

So the real question is why such a backlash?  Why is it appropriate to attack someone who is pointing out that a candidate to be the next Governor of Michigan has ties to an organization that seeks to eliminate and destroy Western Civilization from within?  Well, there are really only two explanations – willful ignorance or deliberate deception.  Media outlets which continue to propagate all of the derogatory remarks directed towards me are guilty of one or the other.

It is now time to hold those who are making these derogatory remarks accountable.  Why are they protecting the Muslim Brotherhood?
